Jimmy Robbins

August 10, 1942 — July 11, 2020

Funeral services will be held at 6 P.M. on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at New Hebron Pentecostal Church in New Hebron, MS for Jimmy Lewie Robbins, 77, of New Hebron, who went to his heavenly home on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, MS. Jimmy was born on August 10, 1942 at home in Shivers, MS. Jimmy was the youngest of 8 siblings born to R.T. and Zora Emma Conerly Robbins. Jimmy was known by many nicknames throughout his lifetime. Pud, because he once ate an entire banana pudding that his mama made for the pastor of their church. As the baby of the family, he was also known as Jimmy-dolittle. Jimmy married the love of his life, Pauline Robbins, who affectionately called him Jim or Jimbo, on October 6, 1967. Jimmy was a 1960 graduate of New Hebron High School where he played football as the high school quarterback. After graduation, he enlisted in the Army National Guard. He was given a medical discharge after a brain injury from being hit by a baseball while playing. He worked at New Hebron Manufacturing Company as a serviceman. Jimmy was very passionate about God, family, Ole Miss, coffee and taking forever to tell a good story. He never missed a church service unless he was too sick to go. Even in his last days, he would watch the service online. He made sure that all his doctors and nurses knew the Lord. He read his Bible faithfully and he knew how to worship the Lord. He loved his family dearly and was so proud of his children and grandchildren. He taught them how important it was to give your life to Jesus. He loved when all his family came together for holidays or family reunions. He loved to cut up and laugh with all of them. He loved to watch his grandsons play baseball. Jimmy listened to his first Ole Miss football game on the radio in 1959. They were playing LSU and he was hooked from then on. For the next 61 years, he never missed a single broadcast game. He would listen to it on the radio while he watched it on T.V. He had a love for Ole Miss Rebels like none we have ever seen before. To say he was the greatest fan ever is an understatement. To say he loved this team with all his heart is not enough. He was as faithful as they come and much, much more. Jimmy loved coffee and could drink it any time of day. If he had to fast for anything, that was his first request. In his younger days, you could often see him sitting outside under the shade tree drinking his coffee. He loved for company to come over and the first thing he would offer them was a cup of coffee. Jimmy was preceded in death by both parents, R.T. and Zora Emma Robbins; his sisters, Frances Hudson, Essie Mae Westmorland, Mildred Honea, and Mary Pearl Rabb; brothers Henry Robbins and Earl Robbins. Jimmy is survived by his wife of 53 years, Pauline Robbins of New Hebron; one son, Jimmy Anthony “Tony” Robbins (Tracy) of Wesson; two daughters, Carey Denise Robbins Lee (Brooks) of Shivers and Crystal Diana Robbins Wallace (Chris) of Columbia; ten grandchildren: Haley Robbins, Hannah Robbins Turnage (Charley), Hayden Robbins, Bryant Parker Robbins, Bryce Langley, Madisyn Lee, Jack Lee, Sophie Lee, Dylan Wallace and Audrey Claire Wallace; one great-granddaughter, Emma Turnage, and one sister, Bobbie Nell Westmoreland (Delmas) of Shivers. Visitation will be held Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at the New Hebron Pentecostal Church from 4:00 till 6:00 PM. Interment will be in the R. T. Robbins Memorial Cemetery in New Hebron.
